Laboratory of Ion Channel Research (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven


The Laboratory of Ion Channel Research. main interest is the mammalian TRP channel family, a class of structurally related non selective cation channels, some of which mediate Ca2+-entry in response to activation of phospholipase C (PLC) . Others act as cellular sensors that translate fluctuations in environmental parameters, such as thermal (heat, cold), mechanical (touch) and chemical (tastants) stimuli, into changes in membrane ...

Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven


The research in the Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking is focused on the cell biology and trafficking of the g-secretase components. This multiprotein complex has been implicated in a new signal transduction paradigm, called Regulated Intramembrane Proteolysis or RIP and is critical in a wide variety of important cellular activities including embryogenesis, brain development and haematopoiesis. RIP also plays a central role in Alzheimer's ...
